Pros Teflon coating makes for easy clean up, pots and pan are a great sizeComprehensive, high end materialsSturdy construction and efficiency-oriented heat exchanger ring, locking universal pot gripperEnvironmental and health-friendly ceramic construction, lightweight and versatile overall constructionDurable, excellent frying pan for discerning cooks, great lid, great value for the set
Cons Heavy, must be conscious of scratching non-stick coatingPot handle gets hot, heavyHeavy, especially for a kit that requires addition of other features, heat exchanger ring is a little messyFragile coating and pots dent easily, no features beyond two basic potsHeavy, no non-stick coating
Bottom Line In its complete form, the Bugaboo is as close to your home cookware as we can envisionAlmost no matter what your camping kitchen needs are, this set (and sometimes a subset of what it includes) will do what you needPrimus set up this basic pot set with some attributes and features that optimize efficiency without bogging you down with finicky performance or gimmicky additionsThe ceramic construction of these pots offer a healthy alternative to TeflonA wonderful option for the frugal car camper
